Really? That seems like the most important factor of "self-improvement". If it only improved its error in the session but makes the same error if you refresh the page, then it didn't improve itself, it simply improved its output. There's a huge difference between permanently upgrading your own capabilities from external input, and simply fixing text already written on the page with external input.

(Also, it sometimes continues to make the same error within the same session even after pointing out its mistake, which is greater evidence against true self-improvement.)
